December 2016: Searchers Admit Most Likely Wrong

MH370: Plane 'not likely to be in search area', say investigators

19 Dec 2016 ATSB Says: We've Almost Certainly Been Wrong All Along. According to breaking major news stories (see: BBC and CNN), the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) admits their fruitless search area was wrong. *Teams searching for missing aircraft Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have very likely been looking in the wrong place, a new Australian government report confirmed. "Given the high confidence in the search undertaken to date, the experts agreed that the previously defined (search) area is unlikely to contain the missing aircraft," a spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) said in a statement. The report recommended that, based on new analysis, a new area to the northeast of the current search area should be searched, approximately 25,000 square kilometers.* Northeast, if they go far enough, will bring them to where my thought experiment says most likely the plane crashed. My idea was confirmed by several reliable witnesses in the Maldives on the day of MH370's disappearance, who were brushed aside by corrupt officials in Maldives and Malaysia. My theory (Lemma 3, as I call it) is thoroughly explained in my novelization and accompanying nonfiction analysis.

Back to page. You are on the main 2016 updates page. Each of these main pages looks different because each dates to a different year. This is the year I published a new edition of the 2014 book with a lengthy new preface, titled Lemma 3: Africa Gambit (see cover at right). You'll find the latest news and information, plus a record of previous updates back to the vanishing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 on 8 March 2014. It's the most baffling mystery in aviation history—likely solved here. All options discussed—accident, sabotage, & hijack. Includes the fruitless search off western Australia.
